Pour the grounded banana into the jaggery and saute it well. When it becomes thick, add 2 tbsp of ghee and combine well. Switch of the flame and keep aside.

Add ¼ ltr water into the grated coconut, grind it and make the thick coconut milk. Then, grind the coconut with 1.5 ltr water and make the semi thick coconut milk.
